The present study it destines to use scientific knowledge of Biostatistics, in particular, the content involving data analysis techniques with multivariate statistical (simultaneous answers supplied by the data vector observed in the animal) to understand the structure of joint variability of the biological variables. From the understanding of the variability structure, build criterion that allows to improve the quality of homogenization of the animals that attends the biological and statistical principles and that ensure with maximum accuracy the inclusion of similar animals and small frequency discharges; maximizing the size of the homogeneous portion for posterior submission to the experimental delineation of the study by the simple process of randomization of treatments.
